Editor’s pickFi Asia 2018: DuPont Nutrition & Health to Showcase YO-MIX® M11


DuPont will also share findings from its recent consumer study which demonstrates the rising demand for nutritional snacks in Southeast Asian markets

JAKARTA, Indonesia, September 5, 2018 – DuPont Nutrition & Health will showcase its new YO-MIX® M11 starter culture along with the findings of its recent consumer study during the upcoming Food Ingredients Asia (Fi Asia) exhibition this October.

Offering excellent post-acidification control, YO-MIX® M11 is designed to help dairy manufacturers deliver extra mildness and creamy texture in yogurt. The starter culture creates a well-balanced taste profile, ensuring a consistent mouthfeel and mildness in products throughout their shelf-life. The starter culture is designed for highly flexible yogurt processing, enabling a longer time in the fermentation tank before cooling or higher cooling temperature to preserve texture.

“Many countries in ASEAN face cold-chain logistical challenges,” said Budhy Gautama, sales leader, Indonesia. “YO-MIX® M11 is the perfect starter culture for our region because it performs well even under fluctuating temperature that can occur over the sheer distances food products have to travel.”

Featuring a blend of selected strains, YO-MIX® M11 includes Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus for direct vat inoculation of manufacturing milk. These strains have been carefully chosen and combined to address customers’ specific needs in terms of acidification, texture and taste.

DuPont Nutrition & Health will also share its findings from its recent consumer studies revealing the tremendous growth of the snacking category in the ASEAN region and the current shift among consumers toward more nutritious snacks. As more consumers move away from conventional snacks filled with salt and fat to more healthy options such as yogurt, our experts will explain how food manufacturers can produce more nutritional, convenient and good-portion snacks.

Visitors at the booth will be able to sample a total of 11 different concepts made with DuPont™ Danisco® range of ingredients. They include a soy-dairy blended high protein coffee, healthy reduced sugar beverage suitable for diabetics, and a ready-to-drink multigrain milk for consumers on the go. Other concepts include baked goods, fresh fermented yogurt, soft serve ice cream and a partial meat replacement meatball.

Join the team at Fi Asia, October 3-5, Jakarta International Expo, booth G12 as they showcase their range of ingredients and broad portfolio of solutions for the Southeast Asia market. They will also be sharing on their latest beverage technology and innovation at the Fi Asia Beverage Theatre, October 4, 12.00 – 12.15pm.
